FUT Birthday Team 1 revealed in FIFA 20: Mbappe, Hazard, Rashford, more
With the FUT Birthday celebrations finally hitting FIFA 20 Ultimate Team, EA SPORTS has revealed an all-new set of cards that are sure to find a place in your club – if you can afford them or are lucky enough to pack them.
For the past few years, EA SPORTS has been celebrating the launch of Ultimate Team with FUT Birthday. The promo, which is an annual in-game celebration, is designed to celebrate FUT’s roots – which stem all the way back to FIFA 2009.
With FIFA 20, Ultimate Team is in its 11th year and is still going as strong as ever – despite a few in-game issues creeping in every now and then – and a global health crisis that has seen the shutdown of all sports. Despite that they, EA SPORTS are marching on with their FUT Birthday celebrations, releasing a new batch of cards on March 27 at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET / 6 PM GMT.
The idea behind this promo is not to just boost certain cards’ stats but to also upgrade either their weak foot or skill moves to a much higher rating.
For example, Kylian Mbappe’s FUT Birthday card features a five-star weak foot, Eden Hazard’s has five-star skill moves, and Manchester City right-back Joao Cancelo now boasts both five-star skill moves and a four-star weak foot.
In total, the developers have released 18 new cards as part of Team 1, which means there will be a second set rolled out next week. So, let’s take a look at this first squad in-full.
